Between Here And Now


the night claims its secrets
while my dreams dance with white sheep
where angels unfurl their wings
and ghostly shadows sing
to the crystal glass shattered


an aria of night’s horror
levitates flames of such beauty
rustling winds mournfully harsh
admonish me to bow
in silent holy prayer


it comes to all mankind
when transformational life
begins scattering the ashes
with eulogies so bereaved
the mystery life and death


touched by a sudden chill
the mountain’s wise messenger
swoops avoiding cinders’ sear
and searching for an answer
he crouches low eyes aglow


with ivory wings spread
he circles the night crying
for all who loved and cherished
the dearly departed one
sighing who who who

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
